In My Comfort Zone
Dimensions: 17" h x 4" w x 4" d
Edition Size: 40
Do you feel relaxed with a glass of wine? Does wine put you in another zone? This sculpture is for anyone who recognizes that they’re probably a little overboard with their love affair with wine, and can laugh at it. There’s something humorous about being inside a wine bottle, poking your head out as if you couldn’t imagine a better place to be.
“Comfort Zone” came after I had explored the positioning of whole bottles in uncountable different ways. Eventually, the thought of breaking or cutting a bottle to get inside began to intrigue me. With a diamond cut-off blade in hand, I learned glass cutting to get just the angle cut I was after. I tried simply breaking the bottles but that didn’t work too well. Many bottles later, I learned the process and was able to sculpt “Comfort Zone”.
